Not necessarily. I was talking to my CA earlier today about this whole situation and he made 2 commets that make me believe you are likely OK:
1. He commented about how expensive it is to shut down a production line. Particularly since the M5 is produced on the same line as regular 5 series cars, so it's a double whammy.
2. BMW is already incurring significant monitary and reputational costs due to this issue. They probably don't want to risk losing a bunch of orders because of a production delay. I was very surprised to learn that of the 686 M5s affected by the recall, only 2/3 of them are owned by customers. The other 1/3 are still in delear inventory. That's a pretty startling statistic on a very recently released M vehicle.
Just some assumptions on my part, but since you have not been told there will be a delay I would assume everything is moving forward.
